Dahmer on Netflix – Actual Testimony of Tracey Edwards, the Victim Who Got Away
"Dahmer" on Netflix has water cooler chatter at an all-time high. The series' opening episode is so jarring, many viewers can't finish it. Dahmer's victim in that episode is Tracey Edwards, and here is his actual courtroom testimony from the 1992 trial.
Jeffery Dahmer And Tracey Edwards
The new hit Netflix series Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is not for the faint of heart.
The series tells the real-life story of one of the most prolific and sinister serial killers in American history, Jeffery Dahmer.
Jeffrey Dahmer reportedly killed 17 men between 1978 and 1991.
The killings were horrifying and brutal, and in most cases, Dahmer gruesomely kept terrible souvenirs from his victims.
By souvenirs, we're talking about body parts. Heads, limbs, and more.
Oh, he also ate pieces of some of his victims.

As the "Dahmer" series on Netflix starts, we come across Dahmer's would-be next victim, Tracey Edwards.
There's no need to go into detail about the opening episode with Dahmer and Edwards because the details in that Netflix series episode were described by Tracey Edwards during Dahmer's 1992 trial.
From womenshealthmag.com -
"A final would-be victim, Tracy Edwards, was able to escape from Jeffrey's clutches on July 22, 1991, just three days after he killed Joseph Bradehoft. Tracy led the police back to Jeffrey's apartment, where they found evidence of his other murders and arrested him."
Court TV recently uploaded the actual 1992 courtroom testimony from Edwards in the "Wi Vs Dahmer" trial, and it's honestly more shocking than the series.
Of course, it is. It's real.
After the harrowing near-death experience, Tracey Edwards moved to Louisiana for a while, eventually moving back to the Milwaukee area.
Dahmer died in jail in 1994 after being beaten to death by a fellow inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institute.
Below is the Netflix trailer with parts including Edwards, followed by the actual courtroom testimony from Edwards.
